A United Nations-backed court has handed down indictments requesting the arrest of four members of the Shia movement Hezbollah in connection with the 2005 killing of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik al-Hariri, according to media reports.

Lebanon's state prosecutor Saeed Mirza has received the indictments, which are supposed to remain sealed for 30 days to allow him to examine them.

Nazanin Sadri reports on how many Lebanese fear that an indictment of Hezbollah members could further escalate sectarian tensions in the country.
